Is it my imagination, or does this year's Modernism Week seems to have even more Tiki than usual? Besides the M Modern Sven happening, our favorite Aquaticat, Marina the Fire Eating Mermaid, will be part of Vintage Roadside's lecture AND will be performing down there on 2/24. Mermaid in the desert! Hope to see some of you down there!

Packing the bags tonight!
First off to Salvation MTN followed by the mud pots by Niland and some post apocalyptic photos at Bombay Beach. Then it's off to PS, check in, change into something festive and off to the show at M. Might try to take some snaps but doubt I'll capture anything quite like Cherry Capri's indian leg wrestling from the opening night @ M 2 years ago.

What a great Palm Springs weekend. For a couple of days, one gets to live a midcentury-modern dream life. There are so many kindred spirits in one place here, and they love to share their treasures.

It all began with the opening of my Contemporary Idol show at M-modern:





As we always do, we stayed at my old friend Pete Moruzzi's house:



Pete wrote "Havana Before Castro", and I photographed it. Our next book will be on classic dining in America, and it will contain mostly my photos, some of them taken at the Mai Kai. Pete had gotten himself a new toy:



A 1965 Buick Riviera with clam shell headlights!



What a beaut!



I love going window shopping (rarely can afford anything there) at the Modernism show at the Convention Center:



MCM dealers from all over the country have their stalls there:



My wife volunteers at the P.S. modcom booth:



Here are some of the cool things I liked at this year's show:























Up next: The big bash, the annual P.S. Modcom benefit party!

After the show we went home to get ready for the evening's festivities, which started out with a little reception at the Gand's Alexander A-frame:



Here's Gary Gand's Studebaker Avanti in front of their house. Gary did a book with Julius Shulman on Chicago mid-century modernism. Here is their house as seen from the backyard...



...which is inhabited by quite a few Tikis:



The big event of the evening was the Palm Springs Modcom party at a house at the Tamarisk Country Club:



This year's theme was Blake Edwards' film "The Party"





They used several concepts from the movie:


White balloons for soap bubbles in the pool




This guy has a brief role in the film...

The best idea was the drinking, drunken waiter "running gag":




Life imitating art:


Naomi wore this fantastic Rudi Gernreich dress from Audrey Moorehead's vintage Gernreich collection:




We were happy we got to know Heather David and her husband:


Heather authored "Mid-Century by the Bay"
http://www.calmodbooks.com/, a book I have always admired.



Above and below are my two favorite pics I got to snap that evening.



Next: More Mod Sunday
